Painting in Puglia

Travel to the picturesque heartland of southern Italy on this six-night painting holiday in Puglia. You’ll have the chance to explore and paint ancient towns, stunning landscapes and tranquil olive groves.

Introduction

With an azure coastline and whitewashed hilltop villages, Puglia is one of the most stunningly varied Italian regions. This means you'll return home with a sketchbook stuffed with drawings and canvases boasting bellissimo Italy! And you'll not just be indulging your passion for painting, because here you'll also feast on a quintessentially Italian menu of fresh fish and seafood, locally reared meats and homemade orecchiette pasta with mouthwatering signature sauces, such as ragu.

The Heel of Italy's boot has some dramatic scenery, from the fairytale cottages, Baroque architecture and some of the most dramatic coastline in Italy. Towns such as Ostuni and Lecce see only a handful of visitors compared to there more northern counterparts, but can easily rival the beauty of Florence.

Why paint Here?

Nothing can beat the amazing light you get in southern Italy. Combined that with amazing coastline, diverse and beautiful cities and ancient olive groves and you've got Puglia.

With lovely weather almost all year round this relatively unexplored and beautiful region is crammed with history and genuine Italian life. That's why we think it's the perfect place to do a painting holiday.

What makes this trip special?

One reason to come to Puglia is the food! Puglia sums up all that is best about Mediterranean cuisine: top-quality local produce, some of Italy's best cheeses and a succulent range of fruits. The traditional local pasta - Orecchiette or 'little ears' is delicious served with sun-ripened local tomatoes. Puglia's historic links with the Arab and Byzantine worlds led local cooks to experiment with spices, making the food truly unique.
